Try some of Indie Lee's amazing facial oils at Indielee.com. My favorite is the Squalane facial oil which is 100% squalane (olive oil derived). This crystal clear smooth oil sinks into your skin, leaves it feeling and looking so wonderful. This is obviously an oil but it won't leave your skin oily nor will it clog your pores. I just wouldn't put it on and then rush out the door! I'm a huge huge fan of her products. My favorite body oil is the lavender moisturizing oil and you can't go wrong giving any of these as gifts. Squalane is $32, 1oz. The facial serum is $130 for 1oz, pictured above. A lot of her products come in this gorgeous brown glass container with a dropper. Read more here.

Yes you need SPF even in winter and these little monkies have an SPF of 30 and retail for $3.99 each at www.TrustTheBum.com. I've been using these religiously for days and I absolutely love them. I tested out the Mango and the Coconut and I love both flavors. They are really helping with my chapped lips and dry skin in the harsh Wisconsin winter! And who doesn't need some color in their Christmas with UVA/UVB Protection!
Just the gorgeous design of this bottle is a sight to see and it will please even the most sensitive of sniffers! Read my full review here.
People really love to get a gift that they can see that a lot of hand care and attention went into. Try these Emily Jayne products here, http://www.byemilyjayne.com/index.html. This line carries natural chemical free body butters and fragrances.
I also love Kitch Hair Ties Holiday Collection which can be found at http://mykitsch.com/hair-ties/ and are 3 for $6.99. How cute are these? I love seeing these new type of hair ties around that don't leave bumps in your hair and you can wear on your wrist when not using them!
I wish I had time and space to list all the great holiday finds I've spotted this year. If you are doing some last minute shopping for the beauty lover on your list, I would definitely recommend checking out QVC.com which as a lot of great holiday sets where you get a lot more for your money!
